      I mean, Jeeeee-zus!! I’m almost 40 years old. All during adolescence my doctors would tell me ‘you’ll outgrow it. Just be patient and take this/rub this on it/wash with this is the meantime.’

      No-good-take-my-money-and-build-my-hope-up-liars!! Every single one of them. To this day I still take a double dose of tetracycline to keep my acne under control—which it mostly does, until THAT time of the month.

      I finally managed to get my eczema somewhat under control by introducing Apple Cider Vinegar into my diet, but even that seems to be losing its effects after several months.

      I’m allergic to almost everything I touch, including soaps, fragrances, cleaning supplies and the like.

      It really pisses me off that I can’t dye my hair on a whim because my scalp will suffer with blisters for 2 weeks; or that I can’t try all the sweet-smelling lotions and creams because the perfumes will send me into a rash like you wouldn’t believe.

      Over the years I’ve managed to narrow my skin cleansing regimen down to just a couple of preferred products that I (so far, at least) don’t react to, but if those products cease to exist (like so many things do) then I’m back to the drawing board.

      It’s so frustrating, I could just scream.  

      I decided to BITCH about it instead. Whew... I actually do feel better! :)

        • I have the same problem as far as being allergic to every thing.  One magical product for my skin (not my face) is Eucerin Calming Creme.  I use it everyday, after my shower & then sometimes before I go to bed.  I recommend it to everybody.  Hope this helps some.
